Programme Context:

The Dubai Inclusive Education Policy Framework (2017) and subsequent documentation places inclusion highly on the agenda in all schools.  It states that schools should:

  • Develop a vision for inclusion
  • Communicate an inclusive ethos
  • Provide clear policy, process, and procedure
  • Provide a Standard School Service
  • Have clear systems of school-based support

 

This course is part of a series of three covering the different elements of creating and providing an inclusive community within your school in the UAE.
